This is surely one of the most inspiring videos you’ve ever seen.

Thirteen-year-old Jamarion Styles, who lost both his arms in infancy due to a rare bacterial infection, is the young man in the video above who has proven that nothing will slow him down.

And when it comes to inspiring stories of determination, I don’t think many can compete with what Styles accomplished last Wednesday night.

During a middle school basketball game, as the time expired, Styles managed to get off the last shot from behind the three-point line. 

 And, to everyone’s amazement, he drilled it—sending everyone in attendance into a frenzy.

This is a young man with no arms, who connected on a buzzer-beater from behind the arc. Unreal.

Thank you, Jamarion, for being amazing, and an inspiration.

Whether he is downing beers with fans at the Super Bowl parade, or living it up on his own line of party buses, few NFL players have as much fun as Rob Gronkowski.

Sunday was no different, as the New England Patriots tight end, who appeared to be in absolute joy, got to sit front row at WrestleMania 33.

It’s no surprise that what turned out to be one of the best moments of the night actually involved the four-time Pro Bowler.

As Gronk was exuberantly cheering on his long-time friend, Mojo Rawley, during his match against Jinder Mahal, things took a turn for the best.

Mahal, clearly not a fan of Gronk, got into a menacing stare with the football star, and preceded to throw his drink at him.

Then, after a moment of hesitation, Gronk hopped over the ringside barrier, removed his shirt, got into a three-point football stance, and clotheslined Mahal, much to the crowd’s surprise.

This is a classic example of Gronk being Gronk; you have to love it.

Now that you’ve perfected advanced lower-body moves like the Bulgarian split squat, you need to learn to crawl (aka duck walk). Doing so with a barbell draped across your back can improve balance, core activation, and explosiveness. In turn, the strength and power you build will translate into better performances on traditional exercises such as squats and deads.

How to do it

  1. In a spacious area, position a barbell on your upper traps and descend into a squat, keeping your torso upright and chest high.
  2. From a squat position, walk forward 30 feet, keeping your core braced. Then turn around and repeat back to your starting point.

Read before you crawl

While safe, the barbell crawl places significant stress on the knees. Don’t rush to up the weight until you nail the technique.
